2021 Air Race Preliminary Info

Although I will get you a detailed letter and cheatsheet with Air Race flight ops information, I wanted to start with some general flow information first.

It will get Air Race busy here before Labor Day, but really ratchet up starting Tuesday, September 7.

We will be a towered airport for certain operating hours beginning Thursday, September 9 until Monday, September 20.

Race TFR’s will start on Sunday, September 12 until Sunday, September 19.

The airport will be closed overnight from 8:00 pm – 6:00 am daily, from Sunday, September 12 until Monday morning, September 20.

That’s all that I have for you at the moment.  Like I said, I will put together more detailed information about airport operations during Air Races and get it out to you before Labor Day.  Also, there will be information in NOTAMs and on AWOS when we get closer to the activities. 

Thanks for your flexibility on this!
